T for Tuesday and Southport Queensland

Well I've been long lost for T Tuesday, in fact May 2016, life has been really busy for me. I was busy with crafts and life in general. Aren't these photos so clear? Clearer than my ipad and iphone 6. I took it with the Iphone 7 and its awesome
So yesterday I drove an hour down south to Southport to get our car fixed and waited around for 5 hours until they called me. Arrived there at 6am because I didn't want to drive down with the mad rush at 7am. Sat at a cafe opposite the car dealership  and ordered this vegetarian meal-no i am not vegetarian and dont plan to be but its the only meal that comes with so much vegetables. Anyway this meal was HUGE. I only ate a fraction of it and had to put the rest into a container but it was so yummy. That sauce was amazing, it had cilantro and mint in it     .
Can you believe how little water they put into my cup? You couldnt even drown in it
        
I sat by the water for 5 hours waiting for my car and this is the view I had, across the water way was Seaworld, you can just see it in the horizon
A closeup of Seaworld. The white buildings to the left is the hotel Nara, would love to go there one day
I had to get up and walk and went past this wonderful garden bed and below was what i saw waiting at the crossing. They are beautifying the place for the Commonwealth games in 2018, cant wait to go back and see

Looking back from the sea behind me is the city view, not to many high rise like the Gold Coast or Surfers Paradise
They have made this lovely Rockpool area with water spouts and small water catchments for the little ones. It was fully today with parents and their children, was lovely to see.

Another view with this soft water park on the water. Was too early for anyone to play. More buildings looking toward Surfers Paradise.

  2. Well Bridget, it's good to see you back at T. So glad you could join us. I AM a vegetarian, and that meal looked incredible. We don't get great meals like that where I live.

    Your photos are fantastic and I was super impressed with the photos of the water park and Seaworld. And you may not think so, but there are more high rises in that last photo than in the entire state where I live! Where you had your car serviced was a beautiful city and I would love to see more of it.

    Thanks for joining us again and sharing your tea and veggies with us for T this Tuesday.

  6. Welcome back. (although I have followed you Fiji adventure). Thank you for sharing all those beautiful photos. You put your waiting time to good use. What a beautiful area you live in and it is good to see a bit of spring now we have had our first snow this morning!
    Your meal looks absolutely scrumptious! The sauce looks very good. I would eat that too (and I'm not a vegetarian either).
    Happy T-Day and thanks for your kind comments,
    Lisca

  10. Oh my!!! That meal looks so yummy!!!! I love veggies and sometimes order the veggies meal like that to enjoy. It's HUGE ♥♥♥♥ Atleast you had some pleasant things to look at while you waited. The last time I took my car in I had to set in an ugly room for 6 hours with my book and crochet. The seats were horribly uncomfortable :( Thanks for sharing your lovely photos with us and HAPPY T DAY!!!!!!
